World marathon champion Eliud Kipchoge

Deputy President William Ruto and ODM leader Raila Odinga have joined Kenyans in wishing marathon champion Eliud Kipchoge success as he attempts to break his own record in a few days to come.

Taking to Twitter to express his faith in Kipchoge, Ruto championed the legend as the world’s greatest marathoner who is set to “define a new level of distinction.”

“In a few days, the world’s greatest marathoner will once again be embarking on uncharted journey to smash the limits of human athleticism,” the DP tweeted.

“I have absolutely no doubt he will achieve it,” he added.

On his part, Raila described Kipchoge as a limitless individual who is set to achieve his goal of a running time record of under two hours.

“I fully embrace the #INEOS159 motto that no human is limited or should be. @EliudKipchoge has never been limited,” the enthusiastic ODM leader tweeted.

He further termed Kipchoge as a gallant son of Kenya and Africa.

“Go go Eliud, we are behind you for something new, something unlimited,” Raila expressed his faith.

Earlier today, Kipchoge received endorsement from Safaricom PLC who incorporated him into their M-Pesa service logo for the next seven days.
